Leaf-Crowned Elder Discussion

I was thinking about your deck more...

Artificial Evolution, Unnatural Selection & Standardize also came to mind. Maybe even Peer Pressure could be used here...like if you have enough changelings in play to outnumber any actual tribes anywhere else in play you would steal them. I like shenanigans. I also like Harmonic Sliver and Sliver Hivelord.

Then there is Moggcatcher & Seahunter, but maybe you already have enough of that kind of effect. Plus Descendants' Path, Call to the Kindred, and Leaf-Crowned Elder work for no mana anyways.

Some more synergy with creature type cards, Runed Stalactite, Harsh Mercy, Mistform Warchief, Mistform Ultimus, Patriarch's Bidding.

..lol have fun :)

Assault Formation is nice, on it's own it does nothing. I don't want to play formation, because it isn't creature. Doran, with his 5 toughness, can attack for 3. Also playing such enchantment on turn 2 would prevent me from turn three Leaf-Crowned Elder/Dauntless Dourbark/Unstoppable Ash... to play that Bosk Banneret is much better. As for Nylea, God of the Hunt, she is not a treefolk, doesn't fit the theme and I don't even think, that she would be good in my deck (I don't know why I think so, maybe I just don't like her...)

Badass and streamlined :) you might really like Leaf-Crowned Elder. Fyi: I don't think these guys are standard legal, but I could be wrong. Have a great day!

yea i noticed that when i tried to add it, also i considered assault formation but i felt any card in this deck helps as a whole a bit better since i don't think enough power would be too much the problem. and less treefolks in the deck would hinder Descendants' Path and Leaf-Crowned Elder

Mentor of the Meek, Hero's Resolve, for the budget goodness of this deck. Toxic Deluge, Austere Command as more expensive removal (TD is also really great with Tree of Redemption/Perdition because you can put them at less than 13, have a board wipe including eldrazi legends, AND swing 13 the next turn.).Big Game Hunter and Intrepid Hero for flavor.Doing a little research, Leaf-Crowned Elder and/or Descendants' Path is epic with your heavy-hitting trees for free.Finally (and this is a new one for me, too): Everbark Shaman! Someone kills your commander? Send it to the GY, then exile it (to the command zone) for two (non-basic) forests! Sadly, it has 3 power so it gets messed up with Meekstone out.

As far as the deck goes, love it. I've been debating making a "big butts" deck with Doran, and came across this beauty. Couple of suggestions.

SB - instead of Natural State or Naturalize why not 3 Nature's Claim. Based on the tempo of your deck the 4 life probably isn't a problem, plus it is a one mana instant that doesn't have the restriction of Natural State. Another catch-all could be Creeping Corrosion if you have a lot of affinity or tron matchups in your area, or Back to Nature if you have a lot of enchantment based decks. Hero's Downfall may not be "strictly" better than Ruinous Path, but the instant speed is nothing to laugh at. However, You could also go with other removal such as Path to Exile or Go for the Throat. Both of those are generally considered some of the best creature removals in the format (for your colors). Tower Defense could be an insane card for your SB against flyers, especially with Doran on the battlefield. Also your sideboard seems somewhat clunky. You have cards that all do similar effects. If you narrowed your sideboard to more universal cards it may benefit you better. Example sideboard for you could look like

3x Leyline of Sanctity4x Nature's Claim2x Leyline of the Void2x Relic of Progenitus2x Spellskite2x Nameless Inversion

You have Nature's Claim to bring in against tron, affinity, prison, Blood Moon, boggles, and other such decks. Leyline of Sanctity against burn and rack decks. Leyline of the Void and Relic of Progenitus against any decks that utilize the graveyard including Jund and decks that use Snapcaster Mage. Spellskite to protect your guys and destroys infect and boggles. Nameless Inversion is there to help against other aggro decks that maybe are too fast for you, or maybe against problematic creatures. I chose this one because of the changeling ability. Again this is just an example, but it is more universal and can help you against a wide array of matchups.

For the deck itself why not play some mana rocks like Birds of Paradise? It's another one that does sort of benefit from Doran, plus it can be a blocker against flyers (since you seem to be pretty worried about that). Also, playing everything a turn or two early is always a good feeling. Also did you consider Kalonian Twingrove as a possible end-game finisher? it benefits from your treefolk supporters and you get two 6/6 (minimum) for 6 mana. Especially would be an amazing combo with Leaf-Crowned Elder. Just a possible thought.
